Milwaukee Athletic Club gets a $70 million renovation
On this week's Urban Spelunking, we check back for an update on another building we previously discussed — the Milwaukee Athletic Club, fresh off a $70 million renovation.
The MAC is another project of Josh Jeffers, a Milwaukee real-estate developer who specializes in restoring historic buildings. The club at 758 N. Broadway was originally built in 1916 and has retained much of its original charm during the reconstruction.
The footprint is essentially the same, but the inside has been completely updated, including all new new equipment for the fitness area, a saltwater pool, a golf suite, multiple bars and restaurants, and an ornate lobby and ballroom. The private club also offers six hotel rooms and 54 apartments.
Listen to this week's episode to learn more about the renovation, Jeffers and his other projects, and be sure to visit OnMilwaukee for even more history and photos.
